As of 2012, this is the reason for climbers to come here. With its >1 hr. approach, don't expect crowds. If you arrive in the autumn, you won't be alone, however: a stone's throw from the cliffs lies private property, all of it hunting clubs, whose members gleefully ply the woods below for game. Bright colors are strongly recommended during hunting season.
Though short, the cliff boasts a lot of excellent climbing, most of it both pumpy and technical. Solid leading at mid- to hard 5.10 level is the sweet spot, although most of these routes can be TR'd with the help of a long static line or extra rope.

Getting There 

Follow the herd path described for West Mtn. Ridge all the way to this southernmost cliff.

Work up and right from there, through a bulge via a right-rising, rounded ramp, then up the final face on small holds....[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
